Online Resource for Food & Beverage Sample Preparation
Genevac has announced a new web page (www.genevac.com/food) that brings together the latest technological innovations, applications advances and references for evaporation and sample concentration techniques relating to food and beverage analysis.
Quality and safety testing of food and beverages is an area of growing importance, be that for exporters, importers or government bodies, accurate analytical results are critical. In common with many other applications, careful sample preparation is critical, especially when the analyte of interest is volatile.
Genevac evaporator systems find application in a wide array of food and beverage applications from testing constituents of beverages and gluten levels in Whisky, to pesticide analysis of fruit and vegetables as well as determining vitamin levels in cereals.
In nutritional studies, the HCl resistant version of the EZ-2 Evaporator has established itself as a system of choice for protein analysis. Protein digests often require digestion with 6N HCl which is highly corrosive to traditional evaporation systems, however HCl resistant Genevac systems are designed to withstand daily use of concentrated HCl.
Web links are provided to a bibliography of scientific publications in peer review journals that offer further insight into how modern evaporative sample preparation methods are enabling laboratories accelerate and improve the process of obtaining new compounds from a range of natural product sources.
Genevac, part of the SP Scientific group, was founded in 1990. Today the company employs around 85 people, with manufacturing, R&D and marketing headquartered in Ipswich, UK. Genevac today offers a comprehensive portfolio of evaporators to suit almost any solvent removal application, purchasing budget or productivity requirement.
